Filmmaker Leigh Singer's latest video essay is an engaging and visually stunning supercut of some of the most iconic and memorable slow-motion movie scenes from the annals of cinema. This epic compilation borrows clips from 113 films, ranging from 1938's Olympia to 1971's Clockwork Orange all the way to 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Viewing Singer's masterpiece, it is apparent that a great deal of thought went into the sequence of the clips and the transitions between them. The slow-motion movie scenes were not simply lined up in chronological order, but are sequenced to play with the viewer's emotions using the tools of anticipation and surprise.
The diversity of clips chosen -- both in terms of their era, technological polish and mood -- gives the video a rich texture, while maintaining a high degree of respect to the movies from which the clips were chosen.
